The last zone in Detyre, located east of Menetyre, is known as Apotyre.
This location includes the City of Adessa, a major establishment in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
Apotyre is also our next stop in the full Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning walkthrough created for those who wish to complete all quests featured in the role-playing video game released on February 07, 2012.
Our Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning walkthrough part 15 Apotyre reveals every quest available in this zone, offering useful information on how to finish all of them, and how to advance in the game.
Those who have followed our KoA Reckoning game guide so far, already know that in Ysa, we have received two main quests.
The first one, called The Great General, came from Alyn Shir, and requires our presence in Emaire, a small village located in the Forsaken Plain. The second main quest, came from Agarth, and can be continued in Adessa.
The quest is called Enemies in High Places; however, in Adessa, we also have to complete the side-quest called Running with Scalpels, which started in Menetyre. Furthermore, in Apotyre, we also have to find Tils Books, needed for the Long Overdue task.
Since the last area we visited was Menetyre, we will continue our journey from Tearscotter Mine, which is a location near the eastern pass that connects Menetyre and Apotyre.
Following the main road, we enter Apotyre, where we are attacked by a band of thieves. Take out the attackers, and then investigate the corpse on the road, because it contains a note: Motus Mining (Day 51).
Read it, and you will start a new task named: Whitestone Tarnished.
As soon as you enter the area, make sure you delimitate it, and only after you discover all points of interest, and mark them on your map, start the quests.
These points of interest are:
Darkvari Mine To the West
Whitestone The city located in the center of Apotyre
Cynric Quarry South of Whitestone
Zungar Shaft North of Whitestone
Snaketail Grotto SE of Whitestone
Motus Mining Headquarters NE of Snaketail Grotto
Sun Camp SE of Motus Mining Headquarters
Adessa Southern area of Apotyre
NOTE: While discovering Snaketail Grotto, cross the river in front of the entrance and check the barn. Inside you will find a cabinet and inside it a note: Motus Mining (Days 45-50). This note is required to complete the Whitestone Tarnished task.
After Apotyre is fully explored, fast travel to Whitestone and talk to the following NPCs:
Beorn near the southern entrance, to start the Bone Town quest
Squire Coran inside Thirsty Wench to start The Messenger quest
Lina Ardeen inside Thirsty Wench for the Missing Keys side-quest
Bera Grastar inside Thirsty Wench to start the Dinner task
Steg Darkvari inside a cage in the middle of the camp, to start the Runaways quest
Now, approach the Bone Wall where you can also start three additional contracts (tasks): The Zungars, The Cynrics, and The Darkvari. After you pick up all, these quests, it is time to complete them.
Side Quest: Runaways
Objective: Steal the cage key
To complete this quest, go to the southern city gate and locate Beorn. Sneak behind him and pickpocket the key; however make sure nobody sees you or you will alert the guards. Keep your eyes on the red indicator above the head of each citizen, and rotate the camera all the time.
Return to the cage and free Steg, then your objective changes. Steg wants you to retrieve the nest egg, which is located in the Darkvari Mine.
While inside you can also complete one of the tasks you picked up from the Bone Wall. In the mine you will encounter only Darkvari Outlaws and rats. Kill all outlaws to complete The Darkvari task, and loot the rat meat from every rat you kill, so you can bring it back to Bera Grastar. Remember that the quest named Dinner Time is repetitive.
At the end of the tunnel you will find a chest and inside it, is Stegs Parchment. Exit the mine and talk to Hrindi Zungar, near the entrance. Give her the parchment then return to Steg near the Cynric Quarry. Talk to him and tell him exactly what happened, and you will keep the parchment, which is in fact a map.
Now, enter the Cynric Quarry and kill all outlaws inside, in order to finish The Cynrics task. All you have to do is to follow the main tunnel until you reach the end of the dungeon, then return to the exit, killing every Cynric Outlaw you see in front of you.
When all enemies are dead, exit the Cynric Quarry and fast travel to Zungar Shaft.
This location is inhabited by Zungar Outlaws. It is similar to the Cynric Quarry and the Darkvari Mine. While inside make sure you loot the dead rats, and kill all outlaws, then exit and return to the city. Talk to Hera Orhelm, near the Bone Wall and collect your rewards.
Also, talk to Bera Grastar inside the Thirsty Wench and sell her the rat meat.
Remember that, the Dinner Time is an endless task, just like Status Symbol, Keeper of the Keys and Gathering Flames.
Exit the Thirsty Wench and select your next quest.
Side Quest: The Messenger
Objective: Deliver the Death Notices
For this quest you must deliver four death notices to the families of the following heroes: Mal Dydyn, Tak Edstar, Joanne Gortan and Ram Leodwald.
